Wall Racing has confirmed that it has acquired a second Honda Civic for this year’s inaugural TCR Australia series, adding to the car which was delivered for the launch event last year.
The Sydney-based team have ordered a second car direct from JAS Motorsport in Italy, whilst also signing a deal to become the Australian agent for Honda TCR cars in the country.
The announcement adds to Wall Racing’s operations for 2019, with the team also committed to competing in the Carrera Cup, GT3 Cup Challenge, Australian GT and TCR Australia.
“We’re pleased to have secured a second Honda Civic Type R for the 2019 TCR Australia Series,” said team owner David Wall.
“It is an exciting new championship to Australia and we are getting closer to locking down drivers to fill the seats.
“At the moment, we’ll start the season by running two cars ourselves, but we have the capabilities of running up to five, so we’ll just see what the interest levels are like in the coming weeks.
“We’re happy to run multiple cars and service other Hondas at the events. They don’t have to be run by our team. We are being very flexible with our customers.
“I’m working on getting some ‘professional’ drivers in the cars. I feel that it is important to have a strong line-up of drivers, but we’re also open to amateur racers too. The category is user-friendly and cost-effective, and now with the TV deal on SBS in place, there’s even more reason to compete.
“I have to thank the team at J.A.S Motorsport for its assistance with securing the Hondas. They are an extremely well built car and have proven their competitiveness all around the world.”
Wall has reported ‘solid interest’ from drivers looking to race in TCR Australia and is optimistic of signing at least two drivers by the season opener at Sydney Motorsport Park on May 17-19.
